Stacking The Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

  • Participants are to create their own Stacking the Shelves post and link bank to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
  • Posts can be laid out any way you want.
  • The host site posts updates on a Saturday but bloggers taking part can post any day they choose.
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on a Saturday and add your link.
  • Visit other participants sites to find out what they have added!

The rules are simple and it is a really fun way to showcase your books and see what other bloggers are excited about this week! Not to mention the fact that it is a good way to interact with and get to know other bloggers!


here are the books i added to my shelves this week:

books bought:

bought 1

Sutphin Boulevard by Santino Hassell: A new book by one half of the dynamic duo behind the incredible In the Company of Shadows series? I am beyond excited for this book!!

Crossroads by Riley Hart: I like this author so when I saw this book I knew I had to pick it up. The synopsis sounds really good too.

Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy: This looked like an interesting read. I haven’t actually read either of the authors previous books but I do own a couple. This one looked like something I would really enjoy.

The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett: I have been meaning to pick this book up for absolutely ages so when it went up today as one of the Kindle deals of the day, well I just couldn’t resist. 😉

bought 2

The Collectors’ Society, The Hidden Library, and The Forgotten Mountain by Heather Lyons: I picked up this series because it is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland (which I love). It looks like a really interesting series.

The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons: The synopsis of this book sounds phenomenal so if it is even half as good as it sounds, I am in for a treat indeed. Fingers crossed!


Funhouse by Diane Hoh: I finally got a copy of this! This was one of my favourite Point Horror books when I was younger so I am pretty excited to finally have a copy all to myself!

beach house

Beach House by R.L. Stine: I remember this book was a blast. The story was well over-the-top (a time-travelling killer was one of its many delights) but it was just so fun – like  proper b-movie style horror!

winter of fire

Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan: I have heard sooooo many great things about this book. It took me a while to finally track down a copy. I had to order it from America and it took so long to come I thought for sure it had disappeared in the mail. But now I have a copy in my grubby paws – finally!!


The R.L. Stine Collection by R.L. Stine (obvs!): I already own these books but it was part of a bundle on Ebay and it was cheaper than buying the books I didn’t have individually. I do like owning the bind-ups so it’s all good really. 🙂

the carver

The Carver by Jenny Jones: I haven’t actually read this one before (which is rather exciting!) so I am looking forward to checking this book out.


Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersley Cusick: Another duplicate but this version has a rather snazzy holographic cover so I don’t mind too much. 😉

the year book

The Yearbook by Peter Lerangis: I’ve read this one but I don’t remember too much about it. I am looking forward for the chance to refamiliarize myself with the story.

the train

The Train by Diane Hoh: I remember really enjoying this book when I was younger though my memory of what happens in it is a little fuzzy.

for review:


| A Sky Unbroken by Megan Crewe | Noir by Jacqueline E. Garlick | A Promise of Home by Wendy Vella | The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly | Living with the Fall by Hannah Thompson | The House on Seventh Street by Karen Vorbeck Williams |

I’m really excited about the ARCs I picked up this week too! I am particularly looking forward to The Foxglove Killings and Living with the Fall – both look really, really good!!

Hope you all had a great week!!

      Thanks Grace. I’m looking forward to starting them. I am really looking forward to Court of Fives by Kate Elliott – glad to see you enjoyed it. 🙂

    • Brin

      It looks really awesome. I am quite fascinated by true crime books/documentaries but weirdly I don’t read a lot of fictional crime books. Thought it was time to change that. 😉

  1. The Heather Lyons books look really pretty! I love looking at nice covers on everyone’s hauls. Hopefully your books will turn out to be as good as they look! Happy reading!

    • Brin

      They are really pretty – I was actually only going to buy The Deep End of the Sea but the covers totally swayed me to pick up her other series as well. Fingers crossed that I enjoy them.

      Hope you enjoy your haul too – the Mercy Thompson graphic novels look pretty interesting. I have only read the first two Mercy books but I did enjoy them. You have reminded me that I need to get back to the series lol. 🙂

    • Brin

      Thanks Hazel, they both look really good so I am not too worried. 🙂 Hope you enjoy your books too – I have to admit I had to look twice at the cover of Omega in the Shadows lol. 🙂

  2. Whoa! You have a ton of great looking books! I read HIM last week and I really liked it! It had been a while since I’d read a good m/m story and this one appealed to me. I hope you enjoy it, too! I think I’m going to check out Crossroads and Sutphin Boulevard now. I hadn’t heard of either of those until I saw your post 🙂 Here’s ours: Bibliojunkies Happy reading! ~ Bel

      Thanks! Glad to hear you enjoyed Him – I am really looking forward to it. I actually just finished Sutphin Boulevard and it was a really great read so I would definitely recommend it. 🙂 Enjoy your books!!

  3. It looks like you have some fabulous reads to enjoy! I really enjoyed The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons and hope you do too. I would love to pick up her The Collectors’ Society series as I’m a fan of Alice in Wonderland retellings. Enjoy you reads, Brin 🙂

      It does have an awesome cover and the synopsis just sounds so good. I am really looking forward to starting it. 🙂
